hurricane sandy i think we have all repeatedly expressed our thoughts are with the victims and families, lost loved ones or having injury, property damage, having their lives turn upside-down. we also owe it to the victims and devastated communities to help them rebuild stronger and safer. hurricane sandy was uniquely devastating, but it will not be the last time that a hurricane hits the northeast or the gulf coast. whether or not one ascribes to the science, an extreme weather event, including hurricane sandy defend stating drought, should inspire us all to think about how we do this job better. providing relief to devastated families and communities is of course the first action. i support it. it should be national priority and i support hr152 as well as the rogers amendment. but we cannot afford to continue the status quo. we need to assure that the investment is done wisely and that it minimizes exposure in the future. first, we need to invest in mitigation. investing a dollar in mitigation can save five dollars in long-term expenses. we need to change the way we budget for disaste
